    Together we can help find more effective treatments for childhood cancer. Your gift will allow more of our local children to participate in clinical trials at Connecticut Children's, so they don't have to travel across the country for treatment.


To remember and honor a courageous young man who fought but lost his battle with cancer.

To raise awareness, because there are too many children suffering from this terrible disease.

To inspire our local kids who are in the midst of their battles.

To raise funds for pediatric cancer clinical trials at Connecticut Children's. 

So that no parent has to hear the words

"your child has cancer.

Hey Robby,

I'm sorry you couldn't make it tonight.

I am wearing your wristband though.
So thank you very much for that - two
of my favorite colors - so that's always

I hope to see you soon - I think we're back in this general area in a bit - not quite sure when, but see you soon. 

And right now go and eat a bar of chocolate, the whole thing, even if it's big, all of it.
Stuff it down.

The English have a tradition of bringing candy, especially chocolate, instead of flowers when visiting someone in the hospital.

Because of leg reconstruction surgery, Robby wasn't able to play soccer his senior year. At Avon's last home game, however, the teams arranged for Robby to take the opening kick, then get subbed out. 

"Dr. Mike" cared for Robby during his entire 3 1/2 year journey. Here he talks about why he chose pediatric cancer as a profession, and the Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders at Connecticut Children's.

They say people come into our lives for a reason. Their purpose may be to teach us, guide us or even to test us. Like a big brother showing his younger sibling how to navigate through a challenging situation, Robby guided Hunter through the fight for his life. 

Liz Brisco


Robby wanted us to continue his fight, not just for his fellow Avon cancer warriors - Chris, Hannah, Hunter, Kamran, Lauren, and Morgan - but also for a special friend Kyla and all the other children.
